No, “liking” is something different; and it’s nothing I ever asked for.
The significance here was less any utility from the new feature itself, than representing the first overt (i.e.
that users were allowed to know about) concession to tweet-flow manipulation. Tweets from people to whom I do not subscribe, for one thing, but which have been retweeted by people to whom I do.
And it’s not anything about my personal data on Twitter that I am particularly worried about. It’s by now well-known how Facebook applies massive computing-power to manipulate a user’s timeline (called there the news feed) to keep people hooked.
When it comes to Twitter, for too long I believed (rather naively) that there was no such manipulation, that the Twitter timeline was a simple “fire hose” of tweets aggregated from accounts one chose to follow. The first step away from “firehose” was the “In case you missed it” feature: manipulation to pluck individual tweets (chosen via AI to be of particular interest to the account-holder) out of their place in the timeline to be displayed again in a special section under that title.
